Well, perhaps you look better than you think you do and people are jealous of your youth and your looks. Perhaps they think you have an easier life than they do!

I belong to a support group, Samston, and they tell us in the support group to be kind to other people even when we're feeling low about ourselves. Try to help an older person who lives near you. Give up a seat to a older or pregnant woman on public transportation. "Fake it til you make it." Get out of yourself and focus on another person. Help someone and get the "helper's high."

That might give you a new perspective on things.

Best of luck to you.

EDIT- I just read that you are non-white and live in a non-white country. One other possibility- are you an untouchable or a member of a similarly discriminated-against group? If that is the case, then I think you should feel pride at how far you have come and ignore the sneers. Wear your self-confidence with pride and don't let them get to you.
no, i live in the caribbean. I'm not from India.

What have I done NOT to deserve it, eh?
1. Do you have BO you are not aware of?
2. Do you come off as a "jerk" when you speak to others?
3. Do you give the same facial expression and they are wondering the same thing about you?
4. Are you attractive? Not so attractive?
5. How are your teeth? Do you smile too much or not enough? (that depends on what city you live, you know.)
6. Are you paranoid or hypersensitive to people looking at you?
7. Do you look like a celebrity?

If you have problem with answering these questions then ask a friend or a coworker. And find the one who will be brutally honest. You should be able to get an answer.
